5 factor comes from. 8. As this is a thought experiment, think about what would happen if we could reduce αrs to zero. Well, the lumens would just keep bouncing around inside the room. Now think about going in the opposite direction. What would be the effect of reducing ρrs to zero? How brightly lit would the room appear? The question is of course meaningless. If you were sufficiently adventurous, you could feel your way around the room and you could use a light meter to confirm the value of the mean room surface illuminance: The meter would respond to those 50 lux, but your eye would not.

Perhaps the worst feature of these specifications is that they have the effect of inhibiting exploration of different ways in which the light might be distributed in a space, and how lighting may be applied to create a lit appearance that relates to a space and the objects it contains. To be obliged to ensure that all lighting is ‘code compliant’ is nothing short of a denial to pursue the most fundamental lighting design objectives. To start, you need to get yourself into an experimental mindset.

Clearly, the impressions that visitors would form of the space will be substantially affected by the designer’s decision. This raises a question. If we are not lighting a visual task plane for visibility, but are instead illuminating a space for a certain appearance of overall brightness, how do we specify the level of illumination that will achieve this objective? All around the world, lighting standards, codes, and recommended practice documents specify illumination levels for various indoor activities in terms of illuminance (lux) and a uniformity factor.
